Russian artillery systems to be controlled and tested with Burevestnik equipment
According to Rostec, testing equipment increases the combat readiness of equipment up to one and a half times. In addition, the 1I37M tools increase the firing accuracy by 1.2 or 1.3 times by improving the quality of parameter setting and taking into account corrections for the individual angle of departure of each projectile and preserve the resource of the gun barrel.

As part of the state defense order, the Central Research Institute Burevestnik of the Uralvagonzavod concern shipped to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation a batch of KPM 1I37M test vehicles intended for maintenance and repair of guns, fire control systems, and guided weapon systems for T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks.

“This machine has a number of undoubted advantages: efficiency and functionality, compliance with the requirements of ergonomics and reliability in operation. The non-firing method of bringing the gun to normal combat, implemented by the 1I37M control and testing machine, is unique and has no analogs in world practice, ”the Burevestnik Central Research Institute noted.
At the same time, the KPM equipment allows the cannons to be brought into normal combat by the usual firing method. In this case, when carrying out the sighting, the determination of the individual angles of departure of the projectiles is carried out by the method of shooting a group of projectiles at the sighting shield.
A highly qualified trained calculation of the CPM, using special devices and equipment, adjusts the elements of the art armament complex in the field at a level typical for newly manufactured and factory-adjusted products.
